Get Yourself Active have launched a new online pack to help carers, support workers and personal assistants support people with disabilities to take part in physical activity.
Many experts in the social care and physical activity sectors collaborated on producing the pack. These include Durham University, Sport England, Sense, Sport for Confidence, Activity Alliance and Community Integrated Care.
The pack aims to educate and empower those who care, support and assist people with disabilities. They can then help people with disabilities get active in a way that suits them.
It’s free and available online for all. It also includes interactive worksheets to encourage conversations around the importance of physical activity.
